Tax Planning & Compliance

Gunnip & Company's tax department provides strategic tax planning and compliance services to both businesses and individuals. From the growing professional to the experienced business owner, or the retiree enjoying the golden years of life, the primary goal of our tax professionals is to be our clients' partner, an advisor throughout the year.

Tax Planning and Consulting Services

Annual tax compliance without strategic tax planning can be more costly than necessary. While we must all pay taxes, we strive to help our clients pay no more than is required by the various taxing authorities. We believe frequent communication throughout the year is the key to effective tax planning. When informed of prospective changes in our clients' lives, employment or business, we can help formulate plans that will be as tax efficient as possible for their particular situation.
